Disaster Relief Donations

October 7, 2016

Checks should NOT be made out to All Saints. Checks should be made payable to one of the organizations below.

When a natural disaster occurs within the United States, electronic donations may be made payable to Catholic Charities USA. They and their member agencies respond to immediate emergency needs for such necessities as water, food, shelter and medical care, as well as to the long-term need to rebuild and recover after widespread destruction. They also assist the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops with pastoral and reconstruction needs of the Church. Their address information follows:

Catholic Charities USA
Online:       www.catholicharitiesusa.org
Mail:           Catholic Charities USA, P.O. Box 17066, Baltimore MD  21297-1066
Phone:        800-919-9338

When a disaster happens in another country, collections and individual donations should be made payable and sent directly to Catholic Relief Services (CRS):

Catholic Relief Services
Online:       www.crs.org
Mail:           Catholic Relief Services, P.O. Box 17090, Baltimore, MD  21297-0303
(Please write the specific incident in the memo line)
Phone:        Call 877-Help-CRS

The important thing is not the way we participate, but rather that we do. The people of God in our Archdiocese are always incredibly generous in responding during these difficult moments.

May God bless all those affected by these most recent natural disasters.
